IserveU is a non-profit society developing software to facilitate transparency, public engagement and participation within organizations and institutions using the principles of participatory democracy.
Organizations using IserveU can put decisions out to their constituents (voters, members, directors), interact with them through conversation forums, and use the system to collect votes on issues arising within the organization. Once users have voted, they are able to rate the comments of those who voted as they did. The top rated comment on either side of the debate is visible to undecided voters, giving them the opportunity to see what each side believes. Learn More
The internet changed everything. Information has been democratized. We can talk to relatives all over the world with things like Skype. But there have been few concrete changes in decision-making capitalizing on this new tool. We believe it’s time to build a tool allowing organizations to consistently involve their members in decision-making. Growing calls for greater public engagement suggest society thinks so too.
